To some, the very thought of sitting down and watching a Disney cartoon is enough to make the stomach turn. I mean, all that cuteness and black-and-white perspective on right and wrong – what’s not to hate? Okay, so maybe it’s just me. Still, there are plenty of us out there that wouldn’t mind seeing something a little more realistic, even in a fantasy tale such as Snow White. Enter Disney’s new take on the tale. Maleficent brings us a new story, one that puts the villainess in the spotlight. And now there’s a featurette to introduce you a bit to what we can expect from this flick.

Listen to some of the cast and crew talk about Maleficent in this two-minute video:

I have to agree with the view that the character of Maleficent is definitely more interesting than that of Snow White. What makes a woman go evil? And what provoked all that crazy villain activity in the first place? Hopefully, Maleficent will answer those questions in a manner that both entertains and satisfies.

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

Check out Maleficent when it hits theaters on May 30th.
